    digging bookmarks out of mozilla-firebird

    I backed up all my data and switched hard drives (overwriting LILO) but forgot to grab bookmarks from Mozilla-firebird.

    Can anybody tell me where to dig for these, or is it even possible to grab bookmarks other than by exporting?

    HELP! and thanks in advance

    Mozilla firebird stores bookmarks in
    <your home directory>/.phoenix/default/<some random value>/bookmarks.html

    If you cannot find it just run the command to find the file named bookmarks.html and you will get the file.
    The exact steps you can follow is
    1>cd to your home directory
    2>run the comamnd "find . -name bookmarks.html -print"
    It is a regular html file.

    You can even import the file in your current install of Mozilla-Firebird.
    Hope this helps.
